Fratelli Pra Monte Grande Soave 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Nose of pears and floral aromas
Soapy on the palate, with a nice texture
Smooth finish, touches of honey and spices

I really like the texture of Soave; it's my favorite Italian white wine. A good Soave fills the mouth, has fruit and floral aromas, and maybe nuts and spices. It also has a "soapy" quality that I like.

This wine was enjoyed over multiple pasta courses at Mario Batali's Del Posto in New York. I paid $14 for the glass. It seems well made and very willing to compliment food. I'll be looking for Pra wines on my next trip down the Italian aisle. Raise a glass!
